SpaceX announced the start of the third stage of the competition in Hyperloop cabins
The first stage of the competition among the developers took cabs at the end of last year, the second took place in the summer. Then the representatives of the company informed that it is necessary to continue the tradition and make the third stage. The company now Elon Musk has opened registration for the competition, which will take place next year. It is expected that during the third wave test developers will demonstrate truly breakneck speed on their capsules.
The winner of the second stage was the team of German engineers, whose capsule could be dispersed in a vacuum tube to 324 kilometers per hour. But the Musk and Tesla company interested in creating your own Hyperloop transport system, so too have reserved something interesting. On its engineers decided to test the capsule of its own design, and managed to overclock it as much as up to 355 kilometers per hour last week. Elon Musk convinced that SpaceX test track is very well suited for running Hyperloop technology - that's where, according to him, all the necessary conditions to ensure that the capsule could accelerate to the required velocity.
Despite the fact that before the implementation of the idea of the vacuum transport system is still far away, test range gives developers the ability to properly break in your own offspring at different stages of their creation.
